you don't love me

ever somewhere in my soul
 it burns
the lashes of the whip
 that forces me to learn
that i had touched
 the thorn of your rose
the puncture was deep
 and the sting still grows
part of my psyche
 tries to forget
but the sting of the incident
 is like the lash of the whip
into my ears the 
 loud pop went
when ever i'm reminded of the
 message you sent
in shame i cannot look 
 into your eyes
they won't tell the truth
 they'll only tell lies
how can i reclaim 
 my wondering soul
that refuses to leave you
 even though i'm gone
and your soul that i thought 
 i had in exchange
suspiciously missing
 isn't that a shame

    Well, I still love you but I'm not the one that's important so keep looking; life tends to be a struggle at times but persistence is sometimes worth the effort.

    i had a break up last night. only to get back together between 2 and 3 a.m. and i really need to get ride of this one. she's on drugs. and your what we call a good girl. your marriage will probably last unless you start drinking and flirting with strange men.

    Sad one. I read what you said to Sara. I guess I just don't have so much drama in my life. not one of these "stubborn" women you talk about. Yep, that drunk poem was my one and only time to drink. I would NEVER do such a thing single and alone with a man not my husband. hahaha

    Very interesting work..Is this a new love gone bad?..Or just something that has happened at once in your life?...Enjoyed reading but hope that you are not hurt..Thanks for stopping by..Never heard of the Aramis scent..I will have to check it out and see what it is..Old Spice is about the only one that doesn't give me a headache..I am weird like that..Appreciate the time spent commenting on my work.If I can tolerate it I might have to get my husband some.Sara

    Sara, when you haven't been married fro fifty years. men and women drift into your life at various times. and if they don't drift apart; then this happens. an incident, feelings get hurt women are stuborn. and sometimes one is just looking for a reason to get out of it. this poem can be used for instructions. because love is brutal.
